Our river systems here in the Albemarle region are wide flat rivers with almost no current flow but if you can locate an area with current you can usually predict where the fish are. Although we do have tides on our rivers they don’t move like a lot of other systems because of the surrounding terrain and in fact the winds tend to move the water faster than the tides do.
You can tell when the wind is from the northeast because the water will rise and stay till it switches directions. The opposite holds true on a southwest wind because the water will drop. With the weather affecting the water the way it does it will provide a current in some areas and if you can find the current you can use it to your advantage.
